Catch n' Shoot: March 13, 2011 -- Contender Narratives, Un-valuing Offensive Rebounds, Russell Westbrook's Historical Young Career, the Bynum Factor
A great case can be made that Tom Thibodeau was the best franchise acquisition of the last offseason. The Bulls moved ahead of the Celtics in BBR’s mathematical power rankings. They’re now sitting in 4th, behind the Spurs, Lakers, and Heat. That said, why was Carlos Boozer still in the game to sprain his ankle... Read more »

Dunk Porn: Why Can't Dwight Howard Be MVP? (Video)

Dunk Porn: Why Can't Dwight Howard Be MVP? (Video)
The answer’s pretty easy: the Magic (35-21) don’t win enough. But I fail to see an argument for just about anyone but LeBron James as MVP that doesn’t make the best argument for Dwight Howard. Do you really think the ‘his team would suck without him’ argument doesn’t make Howard the hands-down MVP? Even over... Read more »

The Mavs (24-6) got it handed to them by the damn Raptors (11-20) 84-76. Most astounding is that half the Toronto squad was injured and the other half is worse than bad, so the Raptors played with an eight-man rotation. Some guy named Ed Davis dropped 17 off the bench, FFS! The Mavs were without... Read more »

Hornets guard Willie Green’s sister and cousin were killed in a car crash Monday. Speechless…. Mavs (23-5) beat the Magic (16-12) 105-99 in Orlando despite J.J. Redick’s 21 pts. and Dwight Howard’s 26-23 double-double — his 3rd straight game with 20+ rebounds. Earl Clark was the most impressive of the four new Magic players with... Read more »

The Spurs (24-3) beat the Suns (13-14) — who were without Vince Carter, Marcin Gortat, and Mickael Pietrus in the rotation — 118-110. All Spurs starters and Gary Neal off the bench scored in double figures, led by Neal’s 22 and Tim Duncan’s 20-15 double-double. Leave it to Phoenix to shoot 53.5% and lose. San... Read more »

Luol Deng is a secessionist. He registered to vote in the upcoming Jan. 9 referendum in Southern Sudan to claim independence from the genocidal regime ruling the country. Role model, IMO: The Nets are reportedly going to ask permission to make a grand pitch-type presentation to sell Carmelo Anthony on signing an extension that would... Read more »

Orlando's Big Time Blockbuster Trade

Orlando's Big Time Blockbuster Trade
The Magic acquired Gilbert Arenas, Jason Richardson, and Hedo Turkoglu for what was becoming some dead weight. The recently struggling Orlando Magic (16-10) made two extremely bold trades this weekend. Rashard Lewis to Washington for Gilbert Arenas The Wizards feel Arenas is on the decline, but I have to wonder if even a declining Gil... Read more »

An excellent, concise case made by a Piston fan why Dennis Rodman belongs in the HOF. Rebounding wins championships. Look it up. Whether star power is up or down, about half of shots attempted are missed in basketball. Cleaning up that mess creates the blowouts that accumulate the wins and prevent the blowouts that create...

I’m very glad I tuned in to the Jazz (5-3) coming back again from 18 down to beat the Magic (5-2), 104-94. It was Utah’s 3rd straight win after coming back to beat the Heat the previous evening in Miami. Terrible traveling calls were made throughout the game, mostly on Dwight Howard, so he was...

The Thunder beat the Blazers, 107-103, in one of the worst OT’s ever. But it did supply us with this tidbit: TNT’s Kevin Harlan though Antoine Walker got the last shot for the Blazers. “I’ll put my draft evaluation record up against anyone’s,” Isiah Thomas said… Yes, that Isiah Thomas. He added that he hopes... Read more »
